One of my favorite Twin Cities shows, 'Triple Espresso', will be ending next year. If you haven't already seen this comedy and variety show, do yourself a favor and buy yourself and a loved one a ticket now! You won't regret it!
After a Twin Cities run of a mere 12 years, "Triple Espresso" is closing in 2008, probably within the next few months. But Triple Espresso Inc., the parent company, will continue to operate.
You couldn't write a more improbable theater success story. Back in 1996, three local entertainers decided to cobble together a show for a performance in the fellowship hall of a suburban Presbyterian church. Each contributed some shtick.
Michael Pearce Donley could do a dead-on impersonation of an unctuous lounge-act pianist. Bill Arnold had a magic act where he was deliberately inept and deadpan defensive about it. Bob Stromberg could do a madcap vaudeville clown in the grand tradition of Red Skelton.
